Model Aaron Thornton on his fav body part: ” My hair. My brothers already losing all his so I’m pretty toked I’ve still got mine lol”.
24 nov, 2013
I am 23. I grew up in Coarsegold CA. I currently live in Santa Monica CA.
Next to being an model/actor my main passion is being an Entrepreneur. I am the inventor of the next big thing to hit yoga so keep your eyes out I also enjoy surfing, Motorcycles, and the gym.
How did all begin: working for John Galliano
Grew up never even thinking about it, People from my hometown didn’t do that sort of thing but when I turned 17 I was scouted by A&F in a mall in Fresno and the ball started rolling. My first test shoot was interesting, I had no idea what I was doing (and I’m not sure I still do) Ha. I quickly found myself in Milan working for the designer John Galliano.
The best thing is I was never the one to look up to growing up and now I hope I can be a positive influence for someone to look up to.
Posing to photographers: different styles brings out good result
I love the different style each photographer brings to a shoot, The end result is always different then you picture it, but in a good way. Its always great when a photographer sees something in you that you don’t and is able to pull it out of you. When i was younger i would have said hell no, but now I’m much more comfortable with myself and confident in who I am but i think its still awkward. Once at a shoot for Coca-Cola we were on set for 14 hours and got pretty bored so the models and the crew had a dance off.
The runway shows
Some designers I have worked for would be Galliano, Diesel, Armani, Guess, Mode, DenStore Jeans.
When I walk down the catwalk I think I walk weird so I try to just not think of how I walk weird HaHa.
Male models rule this business?
No. I think we have more exposure than ever but I don’t think we will ever be at the level women are viewed at.
Aaron´s style: a fashionista?
Ha, I like to think I have a good sense of style but honestly I am a t-shirt and jeans type of guy. But i think simplicity can still look great and a guy should care about how he dresses, and I definitely have my favorite brands.
Imagine u famous surrounded by a huge crowd
Not sure how I could handle it lol. It would be great as long as they don’t stampede me or anything. Ha.
Show business, Fame, Success…
I think it is a great thing when you are working and view it as a job/career and don’t get caught up in the “glam” and “fake” part of it. I didn’t grow up in a place where anyone knew about models so I never really looked up to any.
Dating X Loving
Confident, I’m not a player lol. I’m not a club guy. I prefer the beach, adventure, spontaneous dating.
Don’t watch much sports, but enjoy playing, racquetball, surfing, paddle boarding, motocross. I am pretty competitive if there is a big outcome or reward, otherwise its just a game.
If you could have a super power what would it be?.
I’d choose to be able to teleport. Ever since I saw the movie Jumper. Plus I hate being late and that would solve that ;-)
Who’s your favorite superhero?
Probably Ironman, he´s a genius and a smart ass and can still back it up.
What is the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard a model say?
“Oh my God, you almost didn’t get into the club” (keep in mind we were NOT at a club)
Attracting someone´s attention
Just be me, if they notice it then they are worth it and if not then its for the best.
Having fun, enjoying life
Doing different things. Not staying in the city. Anything to do with the beach and extreme sports
The craziest (nastiest?) thing in a summer time season
I don’t know about nastiest but the craziest is probably when i went skydiving with my brother.
Fav body part and why
Not sure if this counts but probably my hair. My brothers already losing all his so I’m pretty toked I’ve still got mine lol.
In his IPhone
I like variety, so I like Maroon 5, Trace Adkins, Coldplay, Luminieers.
On a cheat day it´s either a 4×4 fries and a shake from in-n-out or pizza.
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those coooool sexy moments
My Armani trunks
If you weren´t a model you´d be…
Still doing what I´m doing as an Entrepeneur
An unforgettable moment
The day I said bye to my little sister to go live in Milan for awhile. she was sooooo upset. I felt bad.
A shoot for Dreamers 2, and a runway show for Anthony Franco.
Normal is forgettable, Be remembered.
